Forest Money in Australia Funds Sensing Project

Sense-T Director, Ros Harvey, said the funding would help deliver highly-skilled technology jobs for Tasmanians and help drive innovation in traditional industries

“Sense-T will be an ongoing resource for creative people to come up with the new businesses, services and jobs of the digital economy. It will also generate easy-to-use apps that will help traditional industries be more efficient, competitive and sustainable.”

Ms Harvey said Sense-T was initially focusing on regions most affected by the downturn in forestry, with projects in agriculture, aquaculture, viticulture and water management.

Jan Davis, CEO Tasmanian Farmers and Graziers Association

“We are delighted with the funding for Sense-T. This is exactly the sort of investment we need to make Tasmania’s economy resilient. Sense-T will give Tasmanian farmers a competitive edge through using technology to drive improvements in productivity, environmental performance and food provenance.”

Jefferson Harcourt, Director Grey Innovation

“Grey Innovation sees enormous commercial opportunity in bringing Sense-T technology to market – in Tasmania, nationally and internationally. Our goal is to see advanced electronics for Sense-T developed and manufactured in Tasmania and exported to the world.”

Dr Tom Lewis, Executive Officer, Oysters Tasmania
“The Tasmanian oyster industry was an early adopter of the technology and expertise offered through Sense-T. Last week we won an iAward for this work. This week we are negotiating to extend the trials to other Australian states. This investment in mobilising mission-critical data is a winner for our industry.”

Sheralee Davies, CEO Wine Tasmania
“Sense-T provides a major opportunity to assist the Tasmanian wine sector’s future success, supporting producers to optimise fruit quality and efficiencies. Wine Tasmania welcomes the additional support announced for this initiative.”

Linda Sams, Head of Sustainability, Tassal
“Tassal is excited about working with the Sense-T team to use sensor technology to help us improve productivity, reduce the cost of green tape and build on our environmental stewardship. We see real opportunities to be a global leader in technology and sustainable development.”

Simon Tyrrell Global Innovation Manager, nSynergy

“We’ve got strong support from private companies that are willing to put money on the table to create a Digital Services Innovation Precinct in Tasmania, using Sense-T as the primary resource. That shows there are real commercial opportunities and the confidence to invest in Tasmania.”
